Come see Uncle Buzzy’s Community Supported AgriComedy at the Velo Rouge Café this May, and a kid’s show at Glenview Elementary in Oakland in March! It’s sort of a rural cross between Saturday Night Live, Flight of the Conchords, and A Prarie Home Companion with live music and comedy! (www.unclebuzzy.org & www.michaelsommers.com)
